Jonathan 'Jack' Harris is a waiter, who hopes to start a newspaper called The Tribeca Times, after the part of Manhattan where he lives, and while struggling to find advertisers and stories decides to do one on Internet dating services, so he joins one and seems to have found a great match, maybe even a soul-mate. He doesn't know it's actually his apartment block neighbor, 29-year old magazine editor Samantha Feld -who only rolled into the thing because her friend and co-worker Jen thinks she needs a man and threw a party at Samantha's place- with whom he clashed from the start in daily life as they consider each-other noisy and inconsiderate. Yet, when they meet after e-mail bliss together and nothing but failed dates with others...

'Disturbing' can, of course, be used to tell a compelling story or to make some deep point (as evidenced by Terry Gilliam's other works), but here, it isn't at all - its just pointlessly uncomfortable.

When I first saw this it was a straight to video release but I was enticed by the unusual title and colourful film cover, but I must admit after seeing it I didn't really like it that much. The film did bomb heavily in the US and this is why the UK only saw it at the videoshop which is a shame. I think the odd casting of Brendan Fraser (never been a big name really) and Bridget Fonda didn't help as the you don't tend to think of these two for a surreal 'Burton-esq' life after death flick as this. I also think Fraser gave the film a childish outlook due to his previous films plus he's not a great actor anyway so this may have detracted from the film.Upon watching again I must say I've warmed up to this fantasy now big time, it does show tremendous imagination and originality throughout which is unique in itself, add to that some marvellous stop motion animation, cartoon animation and a whole host loony toon rubber masks and suits equalling many strange and bizarre creatures. Selick being the master behind 'Nightmare Before Christmas' shows us again here how that wasn't a fluke, much like 'Beetlejuice' the characters are all suppose to be dead or with this film imaginatively created also. Most of the film is set in a limbo land and this allows Selick to run riot with the creations and utilize his skills in stop motion perfectly, all of which is really nicely done.You really could be forgiven for thinking this was a Burton/Selick collaboration as the film is very dark and off the wall highlighting their fascination of the afterlife being basically a pain in the ass. The whole film is highly colourful, vivid and shows great artistic merit with some nice alternative takes on the look for limbo, death, passing over etc...its not morbid but nicely ghoulish.Must applaud Chris Kattan for a brilliant little role as a dead body that Fraser's character inhabits towards the end, really nicely played and quite believeable as a corpse with a broken neck haha kudos. Worst choice is easily casting Whoopi Goldberg as 'Death', who's decision was that!!?.

But when he wakes up, he tramples everything."A documentary of the 1974 heavyweight championship bout in Zaire between champion George Foreman and underdog challenger Muhammad Ali. REVIEWThe story of Muhammed Ali and the famous "Rumble in the Jungle" is the stuff of legend; the world's best boxer becomes a hate figure for middle America and is banned for political reasons; he returns but has lost his edge; he gets a last shot at the world title in a fight to be held in Zaire, whose kleptomaniac dictator is willing to put up his people's cash to pay for it; and against all the odds, he astonishingly beats the superior puncher George Foreman through a combination of wit and bravery. Ali was beautiful and clever as well as violent; his "art" destroyed him, but it's easy to tell his story as a kind of noble myth. Which is exactly what 'When We Were Kings', a documentary that relies relatively little on talking heads (because the whole drama was a kind of performance, and filmed) does. The film even gets its soundtrack for free thanks to the musicians brought in to publicise the fight. When We Were Kings shows a historic fight and the surroundings around it and you can't help but be thankful that such an important event was captured in such a great form.

Graphic opening scene that isn't as effective as it could be, 'cuz you're sitting there screaming, "Why isn't he trying to run away???" But if you decide to watch the rest of the movie as some sort of twisted dark romance, then you might enjoy it. But as a horror movie, skip, skip, skip it!
Jose M (kr) wrote: Street Trash is a very appropriated title because it is appalling, disgusting, deplorable, ugly, morally corrupt, wrong, and sick, twisted, and has no respect or care for the values the zeitgeist had established whatsoever, and way too long at times and that's why I like this film. Street Trash follows a bum living in Brooklyn as we follow, but we stray from him and go around Brooklyn where we see other worthless human beings. The worthless beings will remind us of someone we once saw and may have smell. We(TM)ll be disgusted and haunted as we enter their world. We go into the under belly and beyond as we see their daily activities and routines. We(TM)ll be shocked at some point, but nothing can be done about it except to walkout. At one point, we will soon forget about civilizations and begin to be vicarious with these people and that(TM)s when the fun starts. The film becomes a riot, cheap, and funny once we accept our invitation. The only thing I couldn(TM)t really accept was the film(TM)s manner of wandering away from the plot and character. We get a number of subplots and one involves a whiskey that can make people melt. The special effects are wonderful.

Jacob B (it) wrote: A-Chevy Chase is back with Beverly D'Angelo with the introduction of Jason Lively and Dana Hill replacing Anthony Michael Hall and Dana Barron as the two kids. 'European Vacation' proves to be a fun movie with its slapstick and comedic timing, yet loses the awkward moments that made 'Vacation' a great comedy from the 80's. Still 'European Vacation' is a great time.
